On 3rd June we launched the survey for OU students on five modules and will shortly survey students in Cranfield University and University of Loughborough. Further surveys of students on modules at Cranfield University, University of Loughborough and University of Oxford will take place later this year at an appropriate time during various undergraduate and post-graduate programmes. The selection of modules represents teaching models of varying ICT intensity and the surveys will gather data on the environmental impacts of the modules, associated with travel and the use of ICT, paper and print, and energy (light and power).
This data will be complemented by data gathered:
from a questionnaire that is being designed to survey lecturers’ and tutors’ environmental impacts;
from the Estates Departments in the participating HEI, to identify campus site energy consumption and carbon dioxide impacts.
